Bright Ruby to the rim. A nose of ripe cherry, fresh plum and rose petals. The texture is velvet with blackberry, more cherry, leather spice and tobacco leaf. Amazing silky smooth finish with perfectly balanced acidity and fine grained tannins.

Preferred this much more than the super Tuscan Ornellaia.

Brooding, deep red fruits, kitchen spice, layers of cedar, tobacco, cocoa powder. Bright acidity and balanced. Likely still too young. but heck, I'm celebrating!

Was gifted this by a guest earlier and what a gift! Muscular nose, with leather and tobacco and dried herbs. Leathery on the palate, with some tart plums plums and ash on the long, long finish. I find a lot of Italian wines to be very acidic but this is super well balanced. The finish lasts for a good long time. Worth it.

A great second label from Bolgheri. Earthy, red fruit and cocoa. Well balanced and structured.
